Youth Ministries

Confirmation class meets Sunday mornings at 9am for students in 7th and 8th grade. They study a two-year program covering key doctrinal points and beliefs held by the AFLC, Luther’s Small Catechism and Explanation, and an overview of the Bible itself, to gain a strong grasp on the foundational truths of our faith.
Senior High
High schoolers meet on Sunday mornings to fellowship, worship, and dig into Scripture. Last year we began working our way through Proverbs, an Old Testament book rich with observations and wisdom for living our lives. In the past, we completed one series on 1 Corinthians and another on different Christian denominations, as well as a study that looked at how science actually supports the existence of God.
Youth Group

7th-12th grade students meet every Wednesday at 6:30pm for worship, Bible Study, fellowship, and encountering God. The summer schedule varies, so please watch the calendar for any changes! We have most recently done a study titled “Gender Wars,” which tackled what the Bible really says about gender roles, LGBTQ+ issues, and just why relationships are so hard, whether romance or friendship. In the past, we’ve studied the New Testament book of James, various current and hot-button issues, and a series dedicated to apologetics (defense of the faith).

Our mission is to equip youth to know God deeply, share new hope in Christ, and lead their generation to Jesus!

“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father, who is in Heaven.” -Matthew 5:14-16

This is our theme verse. We are all called to be God’s light and show His love to everyone around the world. We are called to go and spread the Gospel, making disciples, to the ends of the world. Our goal is to equip teens to do just that, to be His light to ends of the earth!
